AQUAZOT SWIMMERS TAKE 2ND OVERALL AT WINTER AGE GROUP CHAMPIONSHIPS
AZOT swimmers finished 2nd overall out of 35 teams at the Winter Age Group Championships. The swimmers have been training hard for this 1st Championship Meet of the season and it shows in the results. There were outstanding swims at all age levels and I am sure just a glimpse of things to come at the upcoming Winter JO's.
Congratulations to all the swimmers. Great Job !
Highlights from WAG by AZOT 3 Head
Coach Kevin Potter:
Ethan Vovan had outstanding lead-off swims in the medley relays,
dropping time in the 50 back(.5 seconds off Winter JO) and dropping a
whopping 5 seconds in the 100 Back. Jason Schreiber was on fire all
meet dropping time in all of his individual races as well as posting
an impressive 1:06 split in his 100 butterfly on the 400 medley relay.
Long Dang dropped 5 seconds in the 100 Breast and achieved his first
Super JO Auto cut. Henry Wilde "the closer" had some exciting anchor
legs of the medley relays to out touch the opposing teams getting 2nd
place in both relays. Anna Wilde dropped time in all of her individual
races as well as posting an incredible anchor leg of the 200 free
relay to help the relay get Winter JO qualifying time. Aaron Huynh
dropped time in all of his invidual races and cracked the top 16 by
dropping 6 seconds in the 200 free. Caleb Park dropped in 5 of his 6
individual events and had an incredible lead-off leg of the 400 medley
relay dropping more time off his personal best in the 100 back. Taelyn
Roberts-Oliver dropped time in all of her invidual events as well
posting some incredible splits in all of the relays that placed 2nd.
